AVALON WATERWAYS ANNOUNCES A RETURN TO EGYPT & THE NILE

 

LITTLETON, Colorado – December 3, 2019 – After a brief hiatus, Avalon Waterways is returning to Egypt in 2020 to invite travelers to stand at the foot of the pyramids, answer the riddle of the Sphinx and sail down the historic Nile River, aboard the MS Farah – a luxury cruise ship – on its NEW Taste of Egypt itinerary.

“We are thrilled to return to Egypt and the Nile River with this once-in-a-lifetime vacation,” said Pam Hoffee, managing director for Avalon Waterways. “From welcoming travelers to Cairo, ‘Mother of the World,’ and inviting them to look up at the ‘Stairway to the Sky’ to welcoming them onboard the MS Farah to sail through Africa’s ancient history and civilizations along the Nile, this is a very special, awe-inspiring experience for travelers of all ages.”

On this 10-day adventure to ancient Egypt, priced from $3,281, travelers will explore the Pyramids and Sphinx in Giza; they’ll visit the Ramses II and Alabaster Sphinx in Memphis as well as Cairo’s oldest church – the Hanging Church – and Tutankhamun’s Tomb in the Egyptian Museum … They do all of this and more before even stepping foot on the MS Farah in Luxor to embark on their Nile Cruise.  Along the Nile River, travelers will visit the Luxor Temple; Avenue of Sphinxes; the massive Karnak Temple Complex, including the Temple of Amun-Ra; the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens; the Temple of Kom Ombo (an unusual double temple), Temple of Isis and more. This is a vacation full of astonishing sites and extraordinary exploration.
